If you live in California you are going to
love hate this news. As you can glean from the title, California wants to be the first liberal state to give government healthcare to illegals. You know, cutting edge of progressivism:
BBC – California is poised to become the first US state to offer government-provided healthcare to some immigrants who are in the country illegally.
State Democrats agreed on Sunday that adults between the ages of 19 to 25 should have access to Medi-Cal, the state’s low-income insurance programme.
The measure must still be approved by the full legislature and be signed by the state’s Democratic governor.
This probably isn’t surprising to most of you, who expect nothing less than liberal idiocy to reign there.
But what I did find interesting is how these liberals plan to pay for it:
The $98m (£77m) plan aims to provide coverage to 100,000 people.
To help pay for the plan, which is part of the latest state budget, lawmakers have proposed taxing people who do not have health insurance.
In other words, they want to tax the uninsured CITIZENS of California to give healthcare to uninsured illegal NON-CITIZENS.
How messed up is that?
Tell me conservative Californians, why do you still live there?
